Enfield plays on ‘Playday’

Published Tuesday, 12 August 2014

On National Playday, Wednesday 6 August, children of all ages enjoyed a great day at the Enfield Town Park where the council’s play development team put together a day packed with exciting free fun events.

Playday fun

Bouncy castles, arts and crafts; face painting, giant orbs, games, dance workshops, balloon release and under-fives play area from Asquith Day Nurseries added to the excitement.

And Enfield Council’s school catering service handed out tasty healthy fruit snacks and information about free school meals.

Play is an essential part of learning where children share the fun, master new skills and laugh. Enfield is packed with programmes of fun in parks, play centres and leisure centres giving children a great summer.

Play development manager, Ricky Williams, says, “National Playday gives children, young people and their families a fantastic play opportunity. It is also the play development team’s favourite day of the year as we get to see hundreds of happy faces playing, creating and enjoying.”

Cllr Ayfer Orhan, Enfield Council's Cabinet Member for Education, Children’s Services and Protection, said:“Enfield Town Park was a wonderful playground for young children. This is a special day celebrated our children’s right to play, but there are many opportunities for children to take full advantage of the free activities at centres throughout the borough and the adventure places in our parks.”
